Growing up in the 1960's, I was bullied because I was a different religion than most of the kids at my school. One boy everyday would taunt me by calling me a "Jew Bagel." As time went by, he would hit me every day after school as I walked home. I asked his alcoholic aunt & father to have him leave me alone, but they told me I deserved it! This went on for a long time.
Once I had my children, I naively thought times had changed, but I was wrong. My son has Asperger's and he was teased for years. My daughter was berated by a queen bee and her followers. This made my daughter grow up bitter and angry, yet also made her a stronger person able to handle anything.
My wish is for people to be treated as they wish to be treated! That's it! Simple!
